Outdoor Fire Pits

Hey guys, does anybody know where I could get my hands on a steel ring for an outdoor fire pit? If I could find a square shaped one that would be ideal.

Canadian tire? Lowes?

Seen them around at those places before.

Does burnaby bylaw permit outdoor fire fire rings?

Not building it in Burnaby. But Canadian Tire & Lowes only seem to have those portable type fire pits with the legs and such. I'm looking to find the steel ring/square insert to actually build a fire pit with blocks.

Found one at Home Depot in the states on the weekend, but really looking for a square/rectangle. Much rather keep my money local.

I think the interior dimension is going to work out to a 28" x 28" square. I'm gonna pick up the blocks next week (long weekend) and i'll be able to measure what the interior size will be for sure.

Once i figure that out maybe i'll hit you up, definitely appreciate the offer, will help things along in a big way.

No problem, just fire me a message when you figure out the sizing and everything. and perhaps a rough sketch of what your looking for.

yeah, go to SNU and pickup an old dryer drum, last time i did that they only wanted 20$ for the whole drum, or go to pick a part and find a nice steel wheel off a truck or something, they work good too

Nice pit op!

Did you plan/prepare an opening for air intake?

I did leave a couple of stones in the lower levels without any masonry glue on them in case I needed to pop them out for air, but the fire sits high enough that it hasn't been an issue. Also, cause it's residential I don't want any large fires, just some small modest, having a couple cold ones type of thing.

And the beers are cold and folding chairs are at hand. I've actually been thinking about getting some tree stumps (buddy is building a new house and they have stumps on the property) and turning them into stools.
